The sock is clue 2 of Sezzaknits MKAL. A pretty lace pattern which spirals round the leg. Nice and simple to knit although I did forget a YO on one round near the end and had to tink back, whoops!
The jumper is an Abernathy sweater for my eldest son. I dyed the yarn in an old slow cooker with some acid dye and food colouring. Basically a glug of this and a splash of that >.< As the skeins are all quite different to each other I've been using a technique known as Barber Pole striping which I first read about on Kepanie's blog. It's given me an idea for a future project too which would make more of a feature of the technique. With this project you can't really tell what I'm doing which means I can practice without ruining anything ;-)
I've changed the cable down the centre so this more complicated looking braid. It's not actually complicated to knit but it looks like it is ;-) My favourite type of cable!
I've lost a bit of steam with my crochet blanket at the moment. I've got 21 squares to make and then it's just sewing them all together and doing the edging. It's half term next week so I might be able to concentrate on finishing it or I might have no time for crafting at all! Depends on how much supervising my children need.
Hope you get some crafting time this week. I'll be back on Friday to show you the finished shrug I made for my daughter. I'll be linking in with Tami and Ginny today so hop over to their blogs to see what other people are working on :-) Thank you to everyone who commented on my latest socks on Monday's post, they've been keeping my feet toasty warm. I've already wound some yarn to make a pair for Mr Soaring Sheep at some point
